Developer Funcom is offering more details on the changes that the coming Issue 6 for The Secret World will introduce to the Player versus Player mechanics of the MMO.Gamers who engage in living PvP will now get to share experience for kills made by their entire group and the share is linked to their deaths in the game, forcing all members of a team to perform to the best of their abilities.
The rate resets when the player joins a new Battleground, to give newcomers a chance to improve their performance in time.
The specific PvP experience will allow players to get Battle Ranks, which offer new cosmetic options available throughout The Secret World.
The Funcom team is also enhancing the rewards offered in battlegrounds around El Dorado and Stonehenge, encouraging players to fight for the spoils.
Issue 6 for The Secret World should be out before the end of the month.
